If you have created a memorial garden in memory of a loved one, then you know how serene the environment can be. The beautiful flowers are planted in all the right places. Trees provide you shade while resting a while. In springtime, birds serenade you while you ponder your thoughts. In the midst of it all, you have a perfectly placed memorial bench.
Tinkling Wind Chimes
Have you ever thought about putting wind chimes in the garden area? Would this break the peace and balance of the mood? You might find comfort in the sounds wind chimes make when the wind brushes past.
How to Pick Out the Right Wind Chimes
Depending on the chime, they will bring a different tone to your environment. When deciding which sounds are best for you, there are some things you should think about.
Do you have a tone preference?
Are you looking for chimes that will give off high pitched tinkling sounds, or do you like the deep gong of larger ones? Be sure you take time to figure out which sound you prefer. You might enjoy a mixture of sounds.
Where will you hang it?
Decide where you can hang your chimes. This may determine what size you can purchase. If you do not have a place directly in your memorial garden to put it, consider hanging it off your porch if it is close enough.
How many should you place?
Combining high and low tones is a great way to add to your peaceful area. You could have a smaller one that picks up the slightest wind movements. A larger chime will go off when heavier winds come.
It is important to keep in mind that when setting up a memorial for your loved one, there is no particulars. You get to decide what is important to you, or what your family member would have wanted.
